Ideally the best way to answer an absurd question is to answer that question in a way that makes it sensible. That way your teacher will feel less inane tonight. light travels 3*10^8 meters per second. Thus do the math..how far does light travel in one second?

Length, mass, time or MKS. More recently S.I. for the currently agreed upon system of units described in the source. This is a short read you must understand.

One way is to use the speed of light as "normalizing" constant then 1 m/c = 3.33x10^-9 seconds

You can't convert meters to seconds. Meters are a measure of distance and seconds are a measure of time (they measure different things). Meters PER second is a whole different ball game. Or we could talk four dimensional "spacetime" but that could be beyond your grasp (and possibly mine too).

Without understanding the concept, the equation is meaningless (except perhaps as a work of art).

This equation is based on Einstein view how an observer sees motion and time at a distance
